How to shop smart
When you go to the grocery store, what do you ALWAYS need to do when buying your nutritious food?
1. Look at the quality of food you are buying. Don't buy any food that looks dirty or rotten.
Vegetables and Fruit should smell good, look good, and feel good.
Meat smells neutral and looks clean.
2. Look at the price.
Compare the price of similar products by weight. Example: 1 pound of fresh strawberries is $4.00 versus 1 pound of frozen strawberries is $3.00. See the video on comparing prices for more examples.
Does the price fit my budget for groceries?
3. Look at the nutritional content on the container!
